I know once again I disappeared . . . but I have been busy sending kids off to college and high school, Getting back into the swing of things- but really not much routine swing left it seems. Every day and week are full. work, Appointments, house and car and body Maintenance. All very time and soul consuming. We have in the past week - had mice take up residence where they do not belong and that also takes up time. Needing to determine the exact location of their doorway such that I can then put a lock on it and throw away the key if you will. Everything has such a Golden hue this time of year. The sun rises later and sets earlier. The Shadows are getting longer while it is getting quieter outside. We are still working on a new project- a pond we have created but I will have to save that for a full post later. It has taken no tie for it to fill with life- frogs, bugs, dragon flys - all so much fun to watch and enjoy. The flowers in the garden are fading but we are busy trying to get some bulbs set in. The vegetables however are rich, full, and plentiful. Enjoy the late summer days for they are Fleeting - Fall begins here tomorrow I believe.
